This is a common issue that many people experience when they are attempting to lose weight. Sometimes the body of your dreams won’t appear with these practices alone. Fortunately, Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery can assist you in your journey to a better body with a CoolSculpting treatment.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is an advanced cosmetic treatment that can help get rid of excess fat using innovative technology that produces a controlled cooling effect. This non-invasive treatment is a safe way to recontour the body using the power of cold. The device used is highly precise and can target specific areas of the body for fat removal. This includes the thighs, stomach, arms, and abdomen. It is one of the safest and most efficient ways of fat removal available.

How Does it Work?

The process behind CoolSculpting is fairly simple. We’ll apply the CoolSculpting device to different areas of the body. There is no pain associated with the procedure, but there is an intense feeling of cold. As we move the device over the designated body parts, the device will freeze the fat in the treated area while keeping the surrounding skin safe.

The Benefits of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting provides patients with an effective way of removing fat without the need for invasive surgery. Patients will not have to experience any downtime for recovery and can return to their normal daily activities without any issues. There’s also no need for incisions so patients don’t have to worry about scars.

Good Candidates for CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is an excellent option for those who have had trouble achieving their bodily goals with diet and exercise alone but don’t like the idea of undergoing invasive surgery. Ideal candidates for the procedure should be within their ideal weight range, be in good physical health, and have realistic expectations.

CoolSculpting is a good option for patients who want to remove stubborn excess fat that remains after they have achieved full results from diet and exercise. It is ideal for body shaping.

CoolSculpting is an excellent alternative for patients who are reluctant to undergo a liposuction procedure. Patients who have no plans to gain significant body weight in the near future are the best candidates. Candidates must not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, we will listen to your body-contouring goals. We will evaluate your medical history and examine the areas you are concerned with. We will discuss your lifestyle, especially your diet and exercise routines. Let us know if you are taking any diet pills or supplements.

Based on your goals and our examination, we will customize a treatment plan to achieve optimal best results. We will discuss every detail of the treatment plan, including your potential results. You can raise questions anytime and we will make sure to answer them before setting your treatment date.

The CoolSculpting Treatment Session

The CoolSculpting treatment session can last from one hour to a couple of hours depending on the target body areas. The patient will be placed in a comfortable position before a gel pad is placed on the target area.

The CoolSculpting applicator will then be placed on the area. The cooling energy released by the applicator will be precisely calibrated to the patient’s needs.


The patient may feel a numbing sensation right after the treatment. Additional temporary side effects may include swelling, redness, tenderness, cramping, and skin sensitivity. The patient may see results at least three weeks after the treatment as the body gradually processes the destroyed fat cells. This process can continue for around six months.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

As with every cosmetic procedure, the cost of a CoolSculpting treatment varies from patient to patient. Factors we take into consideration when determining the cost are the number of treatment sessions required to help you reach your aesthetic goals and the treatment areas we’ll target. During your consultation, we can discuss the details of your CoolSculpting treatment and what price you can expect.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure. Abby has both the credentials as well as the experience with this treatment and I trust her without reservation. If you are considering Ultherapy, make an appointment with Abby today.”
